My First Show
On This day myself and several frinds took the ACT in the morning, hopped in a VW Bus and drove down old K-10 from Lawrence. By the time we got to Arthur Treachers on 63rd St(shawnee Mission Pkwy) we had sever munchies and were in a pretty good haze. Somehow we made it to Memorial Hall with plenty of time to spare. Although I liked The Dead, I had yet to become a Head. By the end of the night Jerry had blown my mind, I was in love with Donna and "Fire on the Mountain" was dancing in my head. I've loved every minute of the thousands of hours listening and going to shows ever since.
Most memerable moments were Scarlet/Fire and Space/Drums at intermission, while gobbling funnel cakes.
Sound quality is okay, but I'm spoiled by Dicks Picks.

Probably the best two-date stand in Kansas's Grateful Dead History...(tho, is that really saying much?)
This show was played on my 2nd birthday,
The sound is still remote, but it's a tad brighter and cleaner.
1st Set: After the previous set's generous helping, the "Ease" choice is comically ironic, but nevertheless, appropriate. "Uncle" has considerable bite due to Mr. Garcia. "River" gets the crowd brimming with delight, tho the version's just slightly above average. "TLEO" continues the warm and fuzzies. Bob's badass tune is next; ("Minglewood") its well played by Jerry and a noticeable Phil. Frankly, the past week's gigs have shown the band leaving no spaces for any Keith embellishments; it's almost as if he's already out of the band despite being present at the gigs. "Brown" has the right slightly sad/nostalgic bent to it, however, it lacks the verveish fight that convinces the audience that a return to this simpler bygone era is enviable. "All Over Now" is more than decent, but I'm looking for earnest anger, not just over the top Bobby vocalizing. Instead of inserting a ballad like 'Peggy' Jerry opts for a "Deal" instead that's awfully short, tho it does get exciting near the 4:00 minute mark. "Jack" climaxes quite well, sending us into that 'must' place for a set-closer.
2nd Set: "Scarlet" gets cooking around the 3:30 mark and eagerly sets up some gorgeous Jerry playing in a easy to enjoy, sexy 15 minute plus "Fire." "Estimated" keeps the pace on a suggestive grinding beat which makes me long for a partner to assist me with mt moves. All set long, Jerry's notes have reached upward towards the heavens instead of rocking us here on earth. Hmmm...I wish I left myself with some bud at the office-it's reaching a enviable place. "Eyes" is there as well, wherever 'it' is, it's there... Even Keith gets in on the action with a lovely solo @ the 5:40 mark. "Drums/Space" are lovely as well, the latter especially as it descends into a maelstrom of dementia known as "TOO." It's typically 'mad' for a show of good quality. "Wharf" is well-played tho not the most soul-searching I've ever hard. "Sugar" is full of good cheer all of which is undeniably earned and the crowd roars with delight upon its entrance. All smiles over here!!
We encore tonight with the expected "Saturday." It's a very good time, get your ya ya' out 4:00 after...
It's been my pleasure to listen to these two nights. Thank you for providing them.
As a final note, it was all about celebrating the day of my birth... ;)

Fun audience recording
A nice mix of audience and band. Jerry's voice in Scarlet has that plaintive, earnest quality. His pre-jam breaks stay glued to the beautiful melody, his last one switches over to chords, which gets the crowd going. The Scarlet jam begins with the crowd clapping in time to the 16 note coda (1-4-4-7). The track labeled "Fire" (16:48) actually begins with a a long continuation of that jam. At 3 minutes JG lets out some kind of a short honk; he drops out for a bit, then hops back in.
At 5 minutes, Fire begins....JG turns on the wah'd intro. He ends his first solo with a couple of interesting long, droning chords. Voice cracks funny on "a-bla-aze." Good things in solo #2. Then it gets real quiet before he starts singing the last verse. 13:30 starts the last solo; 13:56 he states the final theme. Instead of stepping on the gas, he plays several very wide, broad bends, and then takes it out.
